During the Long Night of the Sciences (LNDW) 2022 on July 2nd, from 5 pm to midnight, scientific and science-related institutions in Berlin and Potsdam opened their doors and invited visitors to more than 2,000 experiments, lectures, science shows, guided tours and much more. This year, the guiding idea of the LNDW was Science as a response to fake news, conspiracy theories and fatal errors.
The ECN hosted the exhibition "The Beautiful Mind" in the CCO at Campus Mitte. The exhibition shows large-format photographs of microscopic images of neurons, for example, taken at various neuroscience facilities around the world, including images created by ECN & NeuroCure scientists.
As part of the “Meet the Scientist” series, scientists presented their outstanding research projects – in dialogue with the public. What is the significance of the war in Ukraine for liberal social orders? How does a flower know when it is time to bloom? Are active materials the stuff of our future? How can geometry lead to a more beautiful cityscape? And what happens after a stroke?
